Bayern Munich are back in for Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi this summer, according to reports in Germany.

The winger was linked heavily with a move to the German champions as he struggled for regular football at Chelsea last term.

Under Frank Lampard, though, he has been a lot more involved in Chelsea’s Premier League matches, appearing 22 times last season and contributing five assists.

However, Sky Sport in Germany claim that Bayern could be back in for Hudson-Odoi again by saying ‘this flirtation could get hot again’.

Hudson-Odoi ‘would like to be’ loaned out this summer after Chelsea spent a lot of money on attacking additions.

Juventus and RB Leipzig have also been credited with interest but they suggest that ‘even a loan will not be financially manageable’ for Leipzig,

Bayern are looking for a winger after a ‘purchase failed’ for Ivan Perisic and ‘contact’ has been made between the Bundesliga side and Hudson-Odoi, with Bayern planning to ‘loan the player with a purchase option’.

Speaking of Bayern’s interest back in January, Hudson-Odoi said: “I was talking about it with the family and thinking, ‘I just want to play games,’ and at that moment I wasn’t playing enough.

“I wouldn’t say I was close to leaving but it was on my mind. What happened in January happened. But I signed my contract and I’m happy here now —  everything is going well.

“It’s been a rollercoaster year. A lot of things have happened which made me learn and think about stuff. I just needed to get back, be confident, be myself, score, assist — and show what I can do.”
